The Jakab and Komor Square Synagogue in Subotica is a Hungarian Art Nouveau synagogue in Subotica, Serbia. It was built in 1901-1902 during the administration of the Kingdom of Hungary (part of Austria-Hungary), according to the plans of Marcell Komor and Dezső Jakab replacing a smaller and less elaborate synagogue. It is one of the finest surviving pieces of religious architecture in the art nouveau style. It served the local Neolog community.In 1974 the synagogue was designated a Monument of Culture; in 1990 it was designated a Monument of Culture of Exceptional Importance, and it is protected by Republic of Serbia.The synagogue has long been plagued by conservation issues, though a decade-long partnership between the government and World Monuments Fund that ended in 2010 rendered the building watertight after years of water infiltration. Work on the restoration of the facades is the next phase of work on the synagogue.OverviewThe synagogue of Subotica is the only surviving Hungarian art nouveau Jewish place of worship in the world. Erected by a prosperous Jewish community of some 3000 souls between 1901 and 1903, it highlights the double, Hungarian-Jewish identity of its builders, who lived in a multi-ethnic, but predominantly Catholic city, which was the third largest of the Hungarian Kingdom and the tenth largest of the Habsburg Empire.

  • The synagogue is no longer dedicated to the cult and has been declared a national monument. Despite being closed and currently under renovation works great I could visit it even inside and have a specific story from my guide. Very large building that was begun in 1901, during the Austro-Hungarian Empire, when there were over 3000 Jews. The style is typical of Art Nouveau. The Interior is definitely notable as there is a structure dominated by a large dome and the Interior follows a very pleasant liberty style. Even the large Windows follow the same style. Quite impressive. Restoration to the progressive abandonment of the Jewish community, reduced to three hundred people, is very big, but it's worth it.

  • The synagogue is one of the most beautiful buildings in Subotica and despite the heavy renovations right now talking severely limit the potential for tourism. Unfortunately the entry is forbidden, the garden is a busy construction site by auto and mechanical diggers, and outside various scaffolds are mounted all around. In short, a real shame, we are confident that it is better than what we could see us.
